Lexus IS-F Jumps the Fence At a Drag Race

The Lexus IS-F is a powerful sports sedan with a beefy V8 under the hood and a singular focus on muscle. When we drove it, we knew that this rear-drive car is all about performance. So it’s no surprise that racers throw aero wings on them and parachute kits to hit the drag strip. That doesn’t always mean things go well for them, however. With great power comes great responsibility, says Uncle Ben.. Here’s proof.

Not only does this IS-F go airborne in this race, but it literally jumps the safety fence like a pole vaulter at the summer games.

According to the video description, the driver walked away with nothing more than a need for new underwear after this spectacular wreck.
